According to "Giant Jetliners" by Guy Norris and Mark Wagner, it is in fact
called a "Frisbee Fairing" named after its designer, Lockheed chief engineer
Lloyd Frisbee. The fairing improved aerodynamic efficiency over earlier
models which suffered from air stagnating at the faring between the inlet
and the fuselage.
